Know Your Country

Booktopia First Nations promotion


Kerri Shying's compact opus Know Your Country hides a question in the title – who's the you? Whose country is it anyway? Who needs to know? Who's asking? Who gets to ask what?

Coming through these pages, every reader will find different answers and fresh questions needing to be asked. And what about when the questions are accusations?

This is a book wise to little tricks for painting people into corners.
